DISCLAIMER: TONS OF PICTURES
I'm sure everyone thought it never happened...Allie's Birthday that is. I am finally getting around to posting pictures from her actual birthday party. I still haven't done her video yet for the first year but I'm going to get to it! Things have been so busy around here with baseball that I haven't had time to get other things done.
Allie had a blast at her birthday. My moms were the only ones here so it was low key and she did great. Allie doesn't do well around lots of people in small spaces. She loves the ballpark and does well with people there but even still if she sees someone she doesn't like or hears a deep voice she loses it and it's hard to get her composed again. I did a princess cake for the big cake and then for her smash cake she had a giant cupcake. She dug right in!!!! I wanted to get a picture of it sitting on her high chair with her right there but as soon as she saw it she started reaching for it...then the second I put it down she was immediately in it. Oh my..what a mess!!!!!! It was such a highlight to be able to share that day with her...I'll never forget it! I'm still just amazed that I've been blessed with a little girl...I can't believe it. When I got pregnant this last time there wasn't a doubt in my mind that we were having another boy...I mean we just didn't make girls...it wasn't in our genes. The day we found out she was a girl was the day my grandfather died and we were headed out the very next morning to Oklahoma..I remember walking in and telling David and he just broke down in tears. There are still days that I wake up and have to tell myself that we have pink in our house. Something about a girl....just like a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day! I can't wait until we can dress Barbies,play with her dolls,have a tea party and play dress up. I'm incredibly blessed!
She got a swing from one of her grandmothers. Of course it had to be PINK! She loves it...we've been outside the last couple of days and she absolutely loves to swing..I've got pictures of her first time on it but I'll save those for another day.
I think I've created a monster. Lucas got this camera for Christmas from his grandmother and loves it. Downside is he's always right beside me trying to get pictures and half the time Allie won't look at me because he's right there too. Sometimes it drives me insane and I just tell him he's gotta get out of my way :)
This was her favorite thing...her other grandmother got her this and she absolutely loved them. They're drums that play music and light up...I couldn't get her attention away to open other presents because she was so caught up in these.
She had to see them from every possible angle!
I still think she's the best gift opener of any one year old I've ever seen! She's fast and efficient!
As soon as she opened this walker/stroller she was on top of the box and spent the better part of the next week on top of it. She would crawl up and play and play and play. We just now took it out of the box this past weekend and put it together.
I love this picture...it's like she's saying "Is this all mine?"
She dove head first into it...no hands no nothing...all mouth!
